The facility, financed by Meaningful Life International (MLI), a Non-Governmental Organisation, and in partnership with the Glad Tidings AG Church, an American-based Church, would serve over 500 residents in the community who over the years, yearned for good drinking water.
Mr Kennedy Biedo, the Assembly member for the area who led the elders and donors to commission the facility, told the Ghana News Agency, that the search for good drinking water by his people was a major problem “and as a result, some suffered from waterborne diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and others.”
He appealed for more projects such as an extension of electricity to the community, and good roads among others.
Reverend Dr Godwin Ahlijah, Chief Executive Officer of MLI, assured community members of their continuous support.
Mr Timothy Gavigan, Lead Pastor, Glad Tidings, and his team also expressed gratitude to elders of the community for their patience over the years.
Regent Eklu Bedzra, an elder from the community, thanked the donors for the gesture.
Some community members and dignitaries who witnessed the event were full of appreciation for the gesture.
